Essence: Black Girl Freedom Fund Focuses First Round Grants to Organizations Serving Black Girls Across the U.S.

Jun 11, 2021

Who runs the world? Girls. Now, they’re getting a little more help. 

The Black Girl Freedom Fund, an initiative of Grantmakers for Girls of Color, has announced its first grant recipients. Guided by an advisory committee of seven Black girls and Black gender-expansive youth between the ages of 13-17 years old, the first round of grants will be allocated to organizations that address the safety and wellbeing of Black girls.
